Jon, you asked about culture for this species. Here's what I know. For several years I grew this with 50F minimum and a dry rest in winter. It bloomed pretty well. I moved it to my colder greenhouse about 1 1/2 years ago (because I didn't know it was NOT a cold grower). The images shown here are from April 08. So last winters it had 42F minimum nights, quite bright light (as for Laelia anceps, L. speciosa and Cymbidium species). The summers are 50-55 nights and warmer days, usually in the 80's and occassionally 90 or 100. There is no cooling in this greenhouse, more of a breezeway in the warmer weather. From November until late winter it is quite dry with an ocassional misting or sprinkle. A friend who has spent a lot of time in Australia warned me that it was not a cold grower, but mine has done fine and is still in the coldest greenhouse. So my experience does not bear out what the literature and sage advice are telling me. If you move yours and it dies, I'm not buying you a new one.
